Cannot monitor the input to Audacity on my computer speakers

I have input to Audacity from my turntable, the input meters show it, but I hear nothing out of my speakers. I can record to a file and then playback the file and hear that on my speakers.
What mistake am I making? Why can I not hear the input before recording or whilst recording? I suspect its a simple mistake I am making.


See “Software Playthrough” in How to set up Audacity

Edited by jademan to fix hyperlink

Jademan, Thank you for responding! I thought it was something simple, but didn’t realise how easy to resolve.

The hyperlink you gave did not work, but I used Google to find what I should have found first time!


Glad to hear it is all working; hyperlink repaired. :smiley:
